Have you taken a Home Inventory? If not, you should!

Did you know that every Home Insurance company recommends that you take home inventory? If I had to guess, I’d say a lot of us don’t have anything close to a full home inventory. And if we do have one, we might not keep it updated.

What is a Home Inventory and Why is it Important?

Simply put, a home inventory is a detailed list of everything in your home. All of your possessions including receipts, descriptions, and photos. It’s important to keep an updated list of the content of your home for several reasons.

  1. You want to make sure that you have the right amount of coverage. Over or under estimating may have you paying too much for your home owners insurance or not having enough coverage. Knowing the value of your belongings will help make sure you’re covered either way.
  2. Having a complete home inventory makes it a lot easier to make a claim. God forbid a catastrophe happens but if it does, you’ll be ready.
  3. Being well-organized, in the event that anything happens to your personal property, can only help.

I recently discovered the HomeZada app and one of the first things they had me do is get started on my Home Inventory. What I love most about HomeZada is the step by step instructions for not only taking my home inventory but all of my home maintenance tasks.

Once you have your home inventory, it’s all right there in your app. You’re able to update it as needed and reference as needed. This is just a small fraction of what HomeZada helps with. They help with all home management tasks!
